Find a wide range of these farming equipment suppliers highlighted here of equipment to the small scale farmer; food processing equipment, animal husbandry equipment, fishery equipment, agriculture power equipment, power generating equipment, agriculture tools, as well as their spare parts.

There is significant potential for mechanization to reduce the labour intensity associated with smallholder farming while encouraging the application of conservation agriculture techniques and developing rural service provision businesses.

There are basic tools that no farmer can do without. The top gardening tools include a shovel, digging fork, hoe, rake and wheelbarrow, which can be used for just about everything around the farm. Look for brands that offer a lifetime guarantee on premium quality tools and be sure to look after them.

Tractors

Tractors are the king among different farm equipment. They are the main workhorse of any modern farm. They provide the power and traction necessary to mechanize agricultural tasks. With the right attachment or farm implement, they can be made useful in every part of the agricultural process — from field preparation to product distribution.

There are different types of tractors in the market, varying in size and capacity. The tractor you need depends on the size of your operation

Ploughs

Dating back to primitive agricultural practices, a plough is a farm implement used for turning over the soil to bring a fresh layer of soil to the surface. This is a timeless way to prepare the field for the planting process.

Harrows

After ploughing, the soil is still too stocky and chock-full of soft and hard debris. Harrows are crucial farm implements used to break and stir up the soil, making it even and consistent. This is usually the final part of soil preparation before moving on to sowing process.

There are four types of harrows, but the disk harrow is the best type used in farming.

Broadcast Spreader

If you’re not operating on a small garden, you’re better off buying something to help the sowing and fertilizing process. There are specific tools for each, but you might prefer something for general use.

Broadcast spreaders are farm implements that can help distribute seed, fertilizers, pesticides and other products in the field.

Harvesters

When it’s time to reap the fruits of your labour, you need a harvester to help with the process. The most common type of harvester is the Combine Harvester — best used for grains like rice or wheat. However, you might prefer a specific type of harvester if you’re planting anything other than grains.
